鐵達尼沉沒是因為無「爆樽」?

郵輪旅遊愈來愈普遍,但原來海事行業有各式各樣的文化,其中有很多也是非常有趣,大家可知道有「爆樽」文化?

在西方的造船文化中,「爆樽」可以說是十分重要的一環。新船建成後在正式服役前,都會舉行儀式把一瓶香檳酒丟向船身,「爆樽」以求好運,不過「唔爆」又會如何呢?西方會視為寓意「不好運」的先兆,雖說只是個儀式,在歷史上鐵達尼號確是艘沒有「爆樽」的船隻之一,結果應驗了遭遇厄運的先兆,因此船東們都會特別緊張這項儀式。

至於此文化要追溯至何時已不得而知,但沿襲至今,在海事文化中仍是非常重要的一環,因為一艘船只有一次這樣的機會。

Hong Kong Cruise & Yacht Industry Association Gives FREE Talks to Students on Cruise Careers

Hong Kong Cruise & Yacht Industry Association (HKCYIA) is to give free talks to Tourism and
Hospitality Studies students of 166 secondary schools from October this year to March next
year. The talks are designed to enable students to acquire a broad knowledge and
understanding of the global cruise industry, thereby encouraging them to pursue their
careers in the fast-growing cruise sector.

Kara Yeung, Executive Director of HKCYIA, said “The cruise markets in Europe and the United
States are relatively mature, while the Hong Kong market is still an emerging one. HKCYIA is
dedicated to advancing the long-term development of the Hong Kong cruise
industry through promoting youth employment in the cruise industry.”

HKCYIA is currently arranging the cruise talks with the 166 secondary schools and inviting
students to attend the talks. Lasting around 3 hours each session, the talks will be given
by purser trainers with many years of experience in cruise operations and management. The
talks will cover international cruise information, structure of international cruises,
introduction to cruise travel, and career development in cruise industry. These talks
will provide students with extensive knowledge of the cruise industry, enabling them to
explore the different pathways for further advancements in the sector.

The free talks will be held at Kai Tak Cruise Terminal where most international cruises berth
in Hong Kong. Students wanting to visit the cruises are required to make prior arrangements
with travel agencies on their own.

“We are currently reviewing the applications of virtual reality (VR) technology in education
with several international cruise lines. These will provide students with a real-world
experience in cruise operations,” said Yeung.

郵輪業前景樂觀 港人享先天優勢

新世代渴望接觸世界,對旅遊和海外工作甚為嚮往;作為郵輪員工,可享周遊列國、體會各地文化之便利。香港郵輪及遊艇業協會執行董事楊梓呈表示:「在郵輪上工作,僱員在當值時間固然要專心提供服務。然而他們在公餘可使用專為員工設置的休閒娛樂設施,在甲板上感受生活姿彩;而且每當郵輪停靠在不同的港口,同事亦可在一定的時間範圍內,自由觀光購物。」

郵輪業前景樂觀 港人享先天優勢

郵輪產業橫跨酒店與海事業。「郵輪不再單純是交通工具,而是由酒店及度假場所結合而成的海上度假村。旅客來自不同國家,而港人大多懂得兩文三語,且享多國免簽證待遇,故從事郵輪工作有絕對優勢。」所以不少國際郵輪公司十分樂意聘用來自香港的人才。楊寄語年輕人可放眼世界,不要忽略港人的強項。此外,亞洲郵輪業持續發展蓬勃,加上香港的旅遊吸引力,前景十分樂觀。

在郵輪上任職,僱員須於六個月至十個月的合約期內離開香港,故公司甚為重視個人的獨立性和適應能力。另外,須與船上來自五湖四海的同事,在文化、溝通,以至辦事方式,作出融合。「歸納過往經驗,來自香港的員工,特別善於處理顧客關係、事件協調,及活動安排等工作。」

楊強調,年輕人特別適合加入郵輪業。「他們大多未組成個人家庭,亦沒有太大的經濟負擔,可輕身上路,見識不同地方的文化。三至五年後,他們帶着豐富的國際經驗返港,無論是留在郵輪業,以至加入其他服務範疇,應有很大的幫助。」她續稱,投身郵輪業更有利個人儲蓄。「任職郵輪比起從事陸上的酒店業,可享較高薪酬;吸取一定經驗後,更有機會加入歐洲航線,待遇將會進一步提高。此外,於郵輪上工作,起居飲食都全由公司照顧,甚至連洗衣乾衣,都不必自己操心,可減輕不少生活費。」

郵輪作為海上酒店,有利擁有酒店業學歷或經驗的人士入行。但楊梓呈亦坦言,即使一個在陸上酒店業工作數年的人才,由於始終缺乏海事層面上的體驗,初入職時必須由低做起。不過他們之前所累積的經驗不會白費,假以時日,必能有助平步青雲,扶搖直上。

她續稱,郵輪員工必須持有STCW 國際海事安全認證。由於香港的海事認證已達國際標準,協會可推薦有意入行人士報讀為期10.5日的課程,便可在本地考取STCW,不必到海外修讀。

香港郵輪及遊艇業協會已開辦《國際郵輪管理證書課程》,培訓行業接班人。課程分為三部分,《國際郵輪管理證書I》供持有香港中學文憑試資格的新血報讀;完成此課程的學員,或曾就讀旅遊酒店或郵輪相關課程的人士,便可入讀《證書II》及報讀《證書III》課程以進一步了解郵輪業。當完成《證書II》課程後,通過相關考試,並取得STCW 國際海事安全認證後,學員將有機會到不同的國際郵輪上工作,向世界進發。
